One of our first live performances utilising Dan Willson's technique of magnetically resonating house-hold objects (in this case oven griles). This is a rather industrial sounding affair as the grilles have been prepared with various treatments (as with a prepared piano) to add timbre to this drone performance. Performed live by Toby Clarkson, Chris weaver and Dan Wilson. Club Integral, London - 25th October 2007 Topics: Oscillatorial Binnage, Sound Art, electro-acoustic, drone
Gary Turbo's debut LP, Real Men, a collection of guitar-based ambient mood pieces, is at turns serene and unnerving. It is brittle and pliable. It is warm then less warm. Then it is warmer. It is on the verge of collapse and it is wearing new shoes. Then it is only slightly warmer than previously stated. It is underwater, then it is doing a potato sack race on a distant satellite. It tastes of salted meats. Topics: ambient, experimental, electro acoustic, drone, portland
The sound-art of Spheruleus is produced by British artist Harry Towell with a previous discography including releases on the likes of Under The Spire, Earth Mantra and Test Tube as well as his own label Audio Gourmet. Intrigued by all things old and rustic, his music is often inspired by the rural Lincolnshire surroundings in which he lives and his first outing of 2011, here on Resting Bell, is intended to really captured this. A short collection of deliberately loose and degraded instrument... favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 1 reviews ) Topics: Ambient, Electro-Acoustic, Drone, Field Recordings

Further explorations of the dronescape by Mystified with his remarkable blue plastic trombone. Bone Drones has by now become an open-ended quest to find the sonic possibilities of the trombone as a drone instrument. "For Bone Drones 5, Mystified brought in some new elements. One was Paulstretch-- some of the pBone sounds were stretched before they were further effected, giving them more of a string-like quality. Another was bits and pieces of an ancient opera recording, highly warped and... favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 1 reviews ) Topics: Mystified, ambient, dark ambient, drone, ambient drone, organic drone, acoustic drone, soundscape
Mystified concludes his collection of drone-ambient works derived entirely from trombone sounds, a landmark trilogy expanding an already very diverse discography. "Bone Drones 3", the concluding part of the Bone Drone trilogy, is darker than the first part and less abrasive than the second. All 4 pieces were created from 3 notes played on a muted trombone, then processed and mixed. I tried to focus a little more on progressions and chord structures on this release.

It has been an awful long time since I've done a mix of any sort, and since I've been increasingly been getting into the modern classical, electro acoustic and drone scenes I thought I'd best base my latest offering around those styles. To create this mix, I scanned my iPod for some of my favourite albums over the last few years and hand selected a track or so from each so that I'd built a rough list of various tracks I might use for the mix. Then, I built a playlist on my iPod and have had it... Topics: Ambient, Home Listening, Modern Classical, Electro Acoustic, Drone, Field Recordings, Sound Design,...
Mystified, ever experimenting and innovating, has created a collection of drone-ambient works derived entirely from trombone sounds. "For each of these 5 pieces I played a long note on the trombone, trying hard to get a good tone, and holding the note as long as I could. I then processed the notes. The software I used had a "randomize" feature, and I used that a lot for the processing. Each song you hear is a single note on a real trombone processed randomly, then re-composed in... favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 2 reviews ) Topics: ambient, dark ambient, drone, ambient drone, organic drone, acoustic drone, soundscape, mystified
Mystified continues his collection of drone-ambient works derived entirely from trombone sounds, this time with a prehistoric theme. "Bone Drones 2: Prehistory" is an essay in brass on the times when giants walked the earth. The main source for this release was a single, very high-pitched tone played on Mystified's trombone. This sound was recorded and processed into different sounds, with varying qualities. The resulting sounds were layered and mastered. Mystified dedicates these... favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 1 reviews ) Topics: ambient, dark ambient, drone, ambient drone, organic drone, acoustic drone, soundscape
Et Quid Amabo Nisi Quod Aenigma Est?Die Elektrischen Vorspiele, a blog founded on January 15 2009, and whose sixth anniversary is commemorated with this release, was envisioned as a space for the nurturing of a “savage thought” (that is, of an undisciplined nature). In its essence, and as an individual project, it aims mostly to be a vehicle for its author’s vast-reaching interests, while at the same time harnessing them into some form of discipline. More than just a reflection on the... Topics: Die Elektrischen Vorspiele, EdP, dark, ambient, industrial, experimental, noise, electro-acoustic,...
Mystified has expanded the original Bone Drones trilogy into new territory thanks to the acquisition of a new instrument. A recently invented trombone called the Jiggs pBone has revolutionized the world of "brass" instruments. Although it is constructed of plastic, it is capable of the rich tones and volume of its traditional metallic cousin. It is in its lighter weight and less brassy overtones that new possibilities occur, and thusly inspired, Thomas Park of Mystified has undertaken... favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 2 reviews ) Topics: Mystified, ambient, dark ambient, drone, ambient drone, organic drone, acoustic drone, soundscape
Following on the success of Mystified's "Bone Drones" series comes a new collection of drone works, this time drawing its sounds entirely from a wooden overtone flute. "In August of 2011, Thomas of mystified purchased an overtone flute from artist Steve Brand. The flute, when played, hits a single note on various octaves. It produces a nice, breathy tone. Thomas immediately became interested in using sounds from the flute to create acoustic drones.
